A TAV Cuarator’s Pick.

Boo Boo is the fifth studio album by Toro y Moi, released on July 7, 2017 via Carpark. "Girl Like You" was the first single from the album and was released on June 9, 2017. Toro Y Moi cites Travis Scott, Daft Punk, Kashif, Gigi Masin, Frank Ocean, and Oneohtrix Point Never as inspiration for the album. Toro y Moi said the album was written to help "cope with an identity crisis caused by his growing popularity". – Wiki

“As much as Bundick has switched his style up over the years, there’s something comforting and familiar about Boo Boo. The whole thing is a sunny, contemplative drift, like Angelo Badalamenti’s Twin Peaks theme remade as minimal dance-pop. It struts and sidles and shimmies through the muffled synth-funk of “Mirage” and gorgeously layered echoes of “Windows” and the hushed balladry of “You And I.” And then it all wraps up with a hidden track, “Be,” a tiny little hymn of a song, with Madeline Kenney, a singer-songwriter signed to Bundick’s Company Records, getting the final word, half-whispering, “Don’t call me back.” It’ll make you nostalgic — not for the ’80s or even for 2009, but for right now.” – Stereogum

“Toro Y Moi’s Chaz Bear sounds increasingly comfortable as a lead vocalist and personality on his most personal album to date, as a still-funky but more ambient side of his writing emerges.

…Every Toro Y Moi album promises to be vastly different than what came before it, and Boo Boo is no different. Though Bear (fka Chaz Bundick) has always tried to keep a low profile both on and off record, Boo Boo is his first album that dares to feed a narrative.” – Pitchfork
